An American in Paris
Dir. Vincente Minnelli. 1951, 113 mins. 35mm. With Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, Oscar Levant. Minnelli’s breathtaking Best Picture winner stars the ever-captivating Kelly as a painter struggling to make ends meet in the city of light. With a thrilling all-Gershwin score and a spectacularly designed, climactic dream ballet sequence shot by the brilliant cinematographer John Alton, An American in Paris is pure cinematic bliss and a musical movie landmark filled with such Gershwin gems as “I Got Rhythm,” “’S Wonderful,” “Our Love Is Here to Stay” and “I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise.”
